Learning Together!

At our EarlyON Child and Family Centres, Bruce County’s Registered Early Childhood Educators develop and implement quality programs based on the four foundations of the Ministry of Education’s “How Does Learning Happen?” document focused on the social and emotional health and wellbeing of children and families.
EarlyON works closely with community partners to maximize opportunities for families to access programs and supports that improve outcomes for children and provide a seamless transition from the early years to school entry.
